| | have to postpone hip replacement - what to do in the meantime?
I have bone on bone on my rip hip. I had been getting interarticular hip injections which were helping, but now that it is worse, they aren't helping as much. My DH had a major heart attack and is now in congestive heart failure. I can't have both of us unable to do things, so I have to wait a while to get the hip replaced. I find I limp a lot, and am in pain, and when I try to walk, say, in a grocery store, my LEFT foot hurts, I think because I am putting all my weight on it because I can't put much weight on the right hip. I feel as though my right hip is going to give out. Does anyone have any advice on a hip brace or something that may help until everything is settled down and I can get this replaced? I am also getting pain down my right thigh. Any input would be much appreciated.
